4 thoughts on “hands that serve are greater than the lips that pray

  1. Typical attitude of a rationalist please remember that we need gods grace to use our hands also.

    What u r describing is called karma yoga in the scriptures which is a prerequisite to gain wisdom.
    knowledge does not come with just service
    yes . it helps u to earn gods grace which is necessary to gain knowledge
    knowledge , however is only through a dedicated study of the scriptures under a guru who has learned the same in a sampradaya
    most of us stop with just service and in the evening of our life face an emptiness which is indescribable.

    1. Thanks D:) once again. I wish to quote the following in reference to your comment.

      “Remember, hands that serve are greater than the lips that pray. Real humanness consists in dedicating oneself to the spirit of service. Quantity does not matter; quality of service counts. Whatever you do, do it wholeheartedly and spontaneously. The primary requisite is purification of the heart (Chittha Shuddhi). When your heart is purified, you get Supreme Wisdom (Jnana siddhi) and you can dedicate all actions in a spirit of detachment. Divine love can be secured only by dedicated service. God responds bounteously to your offer. For a handful of parched rice given to Krishna Kuchela got in return limitless prosperity. Draupadi was rewarded likewise. How can you receive God’s love if you do not love Him? God’s Grace is like a bank. You can draw money from that bank only to the extent to which you have built up deposits through Tyaga (sacrifice). Earn God’s grace through love and sacrifice”.– Sai Baba

      In this context I also would like to draw the attention to the point of view expressed in the latest title-” The Future of God-A Practical Approach to Spirituality for Our Times” Written by Deepak Chopra,Harmony Books, New York.
